We start with the COVID situation in South Korea.
Today's daily tally amounting to 1-thousand 5-hundred-75 new infections.
Of them, 18 were locally transmitted and the total caseload is now over 321-thousand.
The tally were slightly less than the previous day because of fewer tests conducted over the three-day weekend.
The daily figure dropped below 2-thousand mark recently.
However, this could be a temporary slowdown.
Authorities are concerned about a holiday surge as more people traveled around the country during the three-day holiday.
